"What do dancers think of Fred Astaire? It’s no secret. We hate him. He gives us a complex because he’s too perfect. His perfection is an absurdity. It’s too hard to face. No dancer can watch Fred Astaire and not know that we all should have been in another business." -Mikhail Baryshnikov.
"He was not just the best ballroom dancer, or tap dancer, he was simply the greatest, most imaginative dancer of our time." -Rudolph Nureyev.
